Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an umbrella term for a set of science-based tools that help manage your anxiety, stress, mood and related struggles.
With CBT, we focus on your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions… testing out different techniques to see how you relate to your internal and external experiences using in-session and between-session practice of skills.
CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It is a widely recognized and evidence-based form of psychotherapy that focuses on the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. CBT aims to help individuals identify and modify negative or unhelpful patterns of thinking and behavior to improve their emotional well-being and functioning.
In CBT, the therapist and client work collaboratively to identify and challenge distorted or irrational thoughts and beliefs that contribute to emotional distress or problematic behaviors. By examining and restructuring these thoughts, individuals can develop more balanced and realistic thinking patterns, leading to healthier emotional responses and more adaptive behaviors.
CBT is typically short-term and goal-oriented, with specific techniques and strategies employed to address a wide range of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety disorders, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, substance abuse, and many others. It is based on the idea that changing one’s thoughts and behaviors can have a positive impact on their emotional state.
Some common techniques used in CBT include:
CBT is typically conducted in a structured and time-limited manner, often spanning a specific number of sessions (12-20). It can be delivered in individual therapy, group therapy, or even in self-help formats with the guidance of books or digital resources. CBT has been extensively researched and has demonstrated effectiveness in treating a variety of psychological disorders.
